Bhutan Times - - Home - Tashi Deki

Ly­onch­hen Tsh­er­ing Tob­gay held a high- level meet­ing of rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the con­cerned agen­cies to dis­cuss is­sues on the cy­ber crimes and com­mended the ac­tiv­i­ties car­ried out by the Royal Bhutan Po­lice in cy­ber watch ac­tiv­i­ties.

Ly­onch­henTsh­er­ing Tob­gay said that the gov­ern­ment was view­ing the is­sue of cy­ber crime very se­ri­ously. He in­structed all the rel- evant or­ga­ni­za­tions to step up their ac­tiv­i­ties to con­trol the un­de­sir­able trend of il­le­gal pro­duc­tion and dis­tri­bu­tion of ob­scene con­tent.

Ac­cord­ing to the press re­lease from the prime min­is­ter’s of­fice the fol­low­ing were the out­come of the high level meet­ing. The Of­fice of the At­tor­ney Gen­eral will have a sep­a­rate unit which will be spe­cial­ized in cy­ber crime and the Min­istry of In­for­ma­tion and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion will up­date the Bhutan In­fo­com and Me­dia Act to in­cor­po­rate strict clauses to strengthen leg­is­la­tion and reg­u­la­tions on the cy­ber crime. On the other hand the gov­ern­ment will work with the me­dia to ed­u­cate the pub­lic on cy­ber crime in­clud­ing on­line ha­rass­ment and cy­ber bul­ly­ing. The Royal Bhutan Po­lice will con­tinue to mon­i­tor and in­ves­ti­gate cy­ber crime and train po­lice of­fi­cers to com­bat all forms of cy­ber crime.
